Guest speakers to address timely topics at Temple Israel

At its August 1 & 8 Friday evening Shabbat services, Temple Israel will host speakers on topics ranging from the current situation in Israel to Jewish genetic testing

Lyon Roth pic At its Friday evening Shabbat services on August 1 and 8, Temple Israel of Greater Miami will host guest speakers on timely topics for the Jewish community.

At the August 1st Shabbat service, the temple will welcome Hillary Kener, outreach coordinator of JScreen, a not-for-profit program through Emory University to prevent Jewish genetic diseases. Approximately one in four Ashkenazi Jews carry at least one of 19 disease genes common in this population. Recent scientific advances now make it possible to help prevent these devastating diseases through proactive screening measures. Kener will discuss options available to the Jewish community.

At the August 8th Shabbat service, the temple will welcome Lyon "Lenny" Roth, who is uniquely qualified to give us an insider's view of Israel. Roth, who is senior vice president at UBS Financial Services in Aventura and has worked as an attorney and finance specialist in the U.S. and Israel, serves as Israel Bonds chairman for southeast Florida. A member of the Israeli Consulate's Speakers Bureau, he lectures frequently on topics relating to Israel, the political and economic climate in the Middle East, energy security and environmental sustainability. There will be no solicitation of funds.

Both services will be led by Temple Israel's spiritual leader Rabbi M. Tom Heyn with musical accompaniment by director of music Dr. Alan Mason on piano and featuring guest cantorial soloists Geniene Buschel Miller August 1st and Yael Dadoun August 8th. Also on August 1st, as is the temple's custom on the first Friday of the month, Rabbi Heyn will lead participants in blessings for August birthday and anniversary celebrants.

Oneg and schmoozing follow services. Community members, including families, are always welcome! Free childcare available by prearrangement with the Temple office at 305.573.5900 or info@templeisrael.net.

Community Tisha B'Av Service, Aug. 4 at Temple Israel

Nine Miami-Dade County congregations will join together to remember tragic past, heal for the future

Tisha B'Av image On Tisha B’Av, the ninth day of the Hebrew month of Av, which this year falls August 4-5, Jews throughout the world will commemorate the somber day – on which the First and Second Temples in Jerusalem were destroyed and countless other tragedies befell the Jewish people – by fasting and chanting the Book of Lamentations, or Eicha. It is a day to collectively address what is known in Hebrew as sinat hinam, or baseless hatred, which is traditionally ascribed to these tragedies, and express the brokenness felt in order to ultimately return to a state of wholeness and connection.

Nine Miami-Dade County synagogues will join together for a Community Tisha B'Av service Monday, Aug. 4 to reflect on the painful past and express hope for the future. The 7 p.m. service, to be held at Temple Israel of Greater Miami, 137 NE 19th St. in downtown Miami, will be led by clergy of the participating congregations and will include prayers, song and poetry.

The evening is open to the entire community. Free self-parking is available in the temple lot.

Participating congregations include Bet Breira Samu-El Or Olom, Bet Shira Congregation, Beth David Congregation, Temple Beth Am, Temple Beth Or and Temple Israel of Greater Miami, all in Miami, Temple Judea in Coral Gables, and Temple Beth Sholom and Temple Emanu-El, both in Miami Beach.

The collaborative nature of the service, which will include Reform and Conservative congregations offering both unique and shared modes of worship, embodies the spirit of Tisha B’Av’s message to move forward from divisiveness to embracing pluralism, says Rabbi Tom Heyn, spiritual leader of host synagogue, Temple Israel.

"Spiritually, there is tremendous benefit in bringing people together from different synagogues, denominations and faith traditions. It reminds us that what we have in common is far more important than what separates us."

For more information, contact the participating synagogues or host congregation Temple Israel at info@templeisrael.net or 305.573.5900.
